Yes, things can change. But if you don’t attempt to guide how that change happens, what will happen will be random and subject to other people’s whims. When you consider what is happening and what effort you can put towards it, it all feels overwhelming to the point where it feels like the safest thing to do is to put your head down and do nothing at all. This would be an error. The safest thing to do is to lift your head up, realize your goal is just out of sight, and begin doing what you need to do to get it in sight and targeted. Do not surrender to the loud and deafening fear.


The RM (Red Magician) Tarot is a limited edition deck created by artist Jay LeRoy. Being that it was originally meant to be the artist’s personal tarot, the artwork is a collage-based, subconsciously-driven interpretation of Hermetic and universal symbolism. The Red Magician Tarot is ©Jay LeRoy.

What Does The Deck Say” is a weekday series of 3 card pulls from a cartomancy deck. No context or query is given to frame what the cards say as the posts are reading samples and not personal instruction. The result is sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, and usually surprising. All readers are invited to leave a comment about what they perceive in the random spread as each person will interact with the cards in their own way.

Personalized, direct, and private cartomancy readings are available via Ko-Fi: Noxporium.
